Nick Kershaw

Associate Physiotherapist
B.Physio, B.HthSci, APAM

Having found a love for helping people and the human body whilst studying Health Science at the University of Sydney, Nick moved to Canberra to study physiotherapy in 2013.  

Across his degrees, Nick also found a love for academia and assisted in conducting and co-authoring research papers to contribute to growing foundations of evidence-based practice in physiotherapy.

After graduation Nick worked in aged care and palliative care for 2 years before moving into a more specialised area of neurological rehabilitation in private practice.  He continues work in this field aiming to help improve the lives of people with complex neurological conditions and disabilities. Nick has a particular interest in working with people with spinal cord injuries, as well as neuro-degenerative conditions such as multiple sclerosis.

In early 2021, Nick branched out and started his own mobile physiotherapy practice to help deliver a person-centred approach of neurological physiotherapy to the community, with a large focus on community integration and quality of life.  Shortly after Nick joined Lighthouse Health Group and hopes to bring his experience and breadth of knowledge to continue to help people.
